COST OF CITY LOTS.
Too High to rialic Watvnacloae

The amazement of the bucolic mind
at the extraordinary prices paid for
a city lot in cities as populous as Chi
cago or New York is brought out by
this yarn, told in tue Chicago Tims
Tom Nlcnoll, the artist, was talk
ing to an old negro down in Georgia
a few days dgo, whom he had .told
that he lived in Chicago.
"Whar Is dis yer Chercargo?" the
ancient darky asked. "Ees dat b'yant

- '"I3out how much, sun?"
"Well, if you just wanted a place to
put a hone, you could probably get It
for $250 or So50 a foot.
The old. fellow leaned over and
looked incredulously into the artist's
"Huh?" he asked. "Is yo telkia'
sense to me, white man?"
"Certainly, and if you wanted a
place to put a store or something like
that, it would cost $4,000 or $S,CO0 a
The negro was paralyzed. He could
not even comprehend the cost of a

In Arizona Is Undoubtedly Very
Copper Area in this Territory
Spreads Over Immense
Mr. W. B. Thompson, of New York,
in a statement respecting the copper
outlook in Arizona, is credited with
While all the copper mines of Mon
tana are pi'actically situated at Butte,
in an area of less than three square
miles, and nearly all of the Michigan
(opporis produced from an area but
little larger, thoro are three large
copper districts in Arizona, viz., Je
roino, Bisbee and Clifton. ' These dis
tricts produce eleven-twelfths of the
copper of Arizona.
In the Jerome 'strict Is situated the
United Verde mines, principally owned
by W. A. Clark. This property owned
over $3,000,000 In 1899. In the Bisbee
district Is situated the Copper Queen
mine, owned by. Phelps, Dodge &,, Cer
In the Clifton district are situated the
mines of the Detroit Copper company,
owned by Phelps, Dodge & Co., and
those of the Arizona Copper company.
Unfortunately, the Btnelter of tho for
mer was recently destroyed by , fire,
which will result In a curtailment of
their production for the current year.
The stock of the Arizona Copper com
pany Is chiefly owned lr Edinburgh,
Scotland. The net earnings of. this
company were over 82,000,000 foi the
year 1899. These two companies pro
duced 32,978,962 pounds of copper In
1899, which Is an Increase over the
production of 1897 of 60 per cent. '
While at present the copper produc
tion of Montana and Michigan mines
is greater than that of Arizona, yet the
Montana and Michigan mines have
practically reached their maximum
output, tho Montana mines being
worked to a depth of from 1000 to 2000
feet, and the Michlgat. mines to a
depth of from 2000 to 4000 feet, while
the Arizona mines, especially in the
Clifton district, are only working their
surface ores, not having had to go
deeper than about 000 feet.
